Ya that's far SW Maine and they're ok.  I go about 4 plus hours NE of that. 

Its Western Maine but your close...lol, Must be a 6-8 hr ride from CT for you to get to the county? I never have to travel more then 2 hrs to ride and if things are right in a good winter, I ride right out the door here to any where in this state.

He's maybe 450 from where I-95 enters Aroostook at Sherman, and there's good trails nearby in the greater Patten area.  Ashland/PQI are 60-80 miles beyond.

Just drove from Caribou to Hopkinton Ma, 440 miles, 6H22M, 75-85mph the whole way, may be a new record for me, I’ve done the trip at least 80 times. Rare to get sunny  and dry road conditions the whole way.

If you hate winter so much, why participate in these threads?

I like winter, especially this one. With all the bickering and whining, seems like most everyone else doesn't like winter. Not sure why people spend days weeks months looking forward to it, hyping it even,  just to cry about it for three months when it occurs

330 to Millinocket from here and just over 6 hours. It’s a bitch going East/West in NNE. I generally ride from home. Can even do that now, though it’s a bit scratchy until you get a little higher up in elevation. Early and late season I can trailer to a great parking lot 20 minutes away and for the very end or earliest start about an hour and a half up to the NEK.

Well you see, most of us like snow bur are below average in that department. So we are disappointed. Not too hard to understand.

Hope you weren't driving that speed as you went thru PQI/Mars Hill/Bridgewater/etc.  :lol:   From HUL south it's pedal to the metal.

If you are talking about CT, most areas only require one or two big snows to make an average winter. Outside of the high NW hills. It isnt like CT is a lock for winter wonderland every winter. Lol

You're just a young ladd, And lol to old for cold at that age.

lol  
I like real cold, though I no longer go on the ice when it's subzero, for one reason it's a pain tending to my topwater traps.  Saturday was just about perfect, cloudy so no glare, almost no wind, only a little skimming needed.  (And some cooperative fish)

If the summer is coc and 70's all July, for ex, should people be outraged and having fits?

Would not be the least bit upset, though the cukes wouldn't like it.  Not happening, so it's idle thinking.

To each their own. I'm in no position to tell anyone else how they should or shouldn't be feeling with regards to weather or anyting else for that matter. 

right...and me wanting 50 in February is no different "trolling" than someone else wanting 70 for highs in July. And you know the ones. I think it's crazy to want 70 but trolling, probably not

anyway the pattern looks like crap so there isn't much else to discuss.

God no, when your on Rt.1 you better be paying close attention to the speed limits, but yes once on 95 you can boogie, I keep my sled in the bed of my truck, no trailer and I have air bags so I don't even know its in there, and my good time was also the result of only one quick bathroom stop and fuel top off.
